Interschool Competitions


Moot Court competition judges

Albany Law School interschool competitions, also referred to as "travel teams," allow Albany Law students to compete against other law schools throughout the United States. These competitions are based around appellate advocacy, trial and other practical situations.

These interschool competitions are the most significant way for students to test their abilities within the legal community as they provide the opportunity to compete with law students nationally and internationally.

Additionally, many of these competitions are known and highly respected by law firms and legal organizations throughout the country and provide an invaluable asset to a student's resume.

Each year a select group of students represent Albany Law School in various competitions throughout the nation. While the competition schedule is still being finalized some of the competitions Albany Law School may compete in this year include:

  • ABA Arbitration
  • ABA Negotiations
  • ABA Client Counseling
  • American Association for Justice (AAJ) Student Trial Advocacy Competition (STAC)
  • LawMeets Mergers & Acquisitions Boot Camp
  • National Black Law Student Association, Thurgood Marshall Moot Court Competition
